One of the most positively reviewed Skagway shore excursions, the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari takes you on a spellbinding journey through some of southeastern Alaska’s most scenic natural wonders with a voyage right up to the face of the awe-inspiring Davidson Glacier Skagway! Cruise in a catamaran along ice-scoured fjords, hike through dense rainforest, and paddle a canoe on a placid mountain lake to the stunning face of the ice wall! Your full-day wilderness adventure begins with a 60-minute catamaran cruise through the Lynn Canal, North America’s longest and deepest fjord. Stay alert to spot whales, sea lions, seals, and more as you pass by steep rock cliffs, hidden coves, and crashing waterfalls. As you take in these sights, your naturalist guide will provide a wealth of enlightening information. On arrival at secluded Glacier Point Beach, an outfitted adventure vehicle will carry you on a short drive across forested glacial moraines to base camp. A quarter-mile hike through the forest leads you to a breathtaking view of Davidson Glacier Skagway and of the lake below, where you will board a 31-foot voyager canoe for a peaceful paddle around the lake and up to the face of the glacier. Back at Glacier Point, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch on the beach before your return cruise back to Skagway.

Ranked as the #2 Skagway activity on TripAdvisor, the Glacier Point Wilderness Safari is geared toward the active traveler who longs to get away from it all and out into the rich natural beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Seats are limited, however, so advanced booking is highly recommended for folks booking Alaska shore excursions on your own. The Glacier Point Wilderness Safari includes dock-to-dock transportation for your convenience and will be a day off the beaten track that is truly unforgettable!

    Wonderful Excursion- Even in Rain!We had a wonderful time on this excursion. From the second we got off the ship the tour staff we met were friendly and accommodating. The gear provided worked well- especially because it rained the entire trip! No worries though, with adequate gear and wonderful guides we had a blast regardless. Plus, with the gray skies the glacier really seemed to glow blue!

    My only comment is that this trip is slightly more labor-intensive than we had anticipated. We were traveling with a family member who had a knee replacement the year before and were going off of the "guests should be able to hike 1/4 mile" disclaimer on the site. In truth, we walked closer to 2 miles along very uneven terrain (shifting sand), which was outside his comfort zone. That said, we all enjoyed our trip, and would definitely do it again next time we visit Skagway. This was the highlight of our cruise on the inside passage!

    Our ship arrives at 7:00 a.m. - do we have time to make the 7:30 a.m. departure?

    Answer: Yes! In many ways, the 7:30 a.m. departure is geared towards guests arriving at 7:00 a.m. Just be prepared to disembark early or on time and there shouldn't be any problems joining the 7:30 a.m. departure.
